Why did their friend, child, parent, spouse, or sibling take their own life? Even when a note explaining the reasons is found, many long lasting questions usually remains.
What could be the possible reason why a person felt enough misery to want to die? Why did they feel that way? A person’s suicide often takes the people it leaves behind by surprise. In general, people try to kill themselves for the following reasons:
2. They’re impulsive: Often related to drugs and alcohol, some people make an impulsive attempt to end their lives. Once sobered and calmed, these people usually feel emphatically ashamed.
3. A philosophical desire to die: The decision to commit suicide for some is based on a reasoned decision, often motivated by the presence of a painful terminal illness from which little to no hope exists.
4. They’ve made a mistake: This is a recent, tragic phenomenon in which typically young people get trapped.
Here is a psychological intervention that is needed to deal with all the above mentioned issue:
Get in touch with a counselor: Only a qualified mental health professional can give you the advice and diagnosis you need to figure out what is happening and how to resolve it. There is absolutely no shame in getting help, so do it right now – today, before things get worse.
Join support groups: There are numerous groups online and in person that can help you through your issue by offering up stories of those who have already walked this path.
Take medication as directed: If you are prescribed medications, take them exactly as directed. Never stop them simply because you are “feeling better.” This can lead to a rebound effect, which can make your case even more severe.
The wounds suicide leaves in the lives of those left behind by it are often deep and long lasting. It can be very difficult to understand suicide. Sometimes there is no way to understand – the person who dies by suicide has a very deep pain that defies explanation, even to them. However, trying to understand what drives someone to such a desperate act might lead to help for others.
